It's been one week since we released the first PocketStoic iOS prototype (Android version coming soon), and the response from the community has been phenomenal. One of the questions we asked our testers was: what features would you like to see added to the app?
Of the answers we received, the following 7 requests were the most common:
1. Audio streaming for eBooks, Stoic podcasts, and guided exercises/meditations
To implement these features, we are looking at adding an audiobook and podcast section to the Library, as well as guided audio exercises to the Journal section. We are also planning on including Donald Robertson's guided audio meditations in the app.
2. Ability to import previously owned eBooks into the your Library
Many have expressed a concern over whether they will be able to import their previously owned Stoic eBooks into the app. We are working to ensure this functionality is implemented before our release.
3. Ability to add and edit quotes
We have received many comments requesting an ability to copy passages from eBooks into the Quotes section, as well as an option to enter custom quotes. We plan to add this functionality shortly.
4. Ability to filter quotes based on everyday situations
This is an interesting idea which we are hoping to hear more feedback on. Examples of these filters might include "A person has insulted me", or "I am feeling lazy", etc.
5. Custom notification settings
We will be including notification settings in the app. These options will include the ability to set daily reminders to write in your journal, and to receive timed wisdom and prompts.
6. Mood tracker/growth metrics system
A tracking/metric system is something we are exploring, though these features may be best utilized in a subsequent stand-alone application.
7. Social integration
We will be including integration features such as the the option to share quotes on social networks. We are also exploring ways in which the app might allow people to connect with fellow users and the Stoic community at large.
